Brothers in Business
Are you a brother who has his own business? From a suggestion by Mike Ibbotson during one of our regular meetings, Council 4504 has decided to spotlight, on a monthly basis, in the Digest and on the Council’s website, a brother who has his own business. That business may be in or out of Union.
We therefore are asking all brothers who own your own businesses, to submit your names, business name and services offered to GK Michael Willemse or PGK Giftus John. We will then randomly pick a business to highlight. All businesses submitted will be highlighted, and submissions will be on an ongoing basis. No deadlines!
We are hoping that this initiative will work at building stronger ties between our business brothers and our general membership who have need for their services, hopefully at a special rate.
Thanks Mike, for bringing the suggestion to the Council.
We would like to feature our first Brother In Business, Luke Sangiamo. Brother Luke Sangiamo is the current Financial Secretary for Union Council #4504, and is a local Realtor who works with his wife Sarah at All Towne Realty, a local family-run office. Luke specializes in working with buyers and sellers of residential properties in Union, Essex, and Middlesex counties. While being a younger agent, he has already received recognition from the NJ Association of Realtors for his achievements. He has worked with many first time home buyers, as well as people looking to sell and find homes that better suit their needs. Having lived in and around Union County for 30 years and attending Rutgers University in Newark, Luke has a personal familiarity with many of the neighborhoods we all live and work in.
Finding the right home, or selling a home you have grown to love is one of the most important and difficult decisions to make. Luke approaches his career by getting to know his clients to relate to their perspective and understand their situation. He does not view his role as only a transaction, but an opportunity to help his clients understand the current market and assist them in making the best decision possible for them and their families. Luke can be reached anytime on his business line at (908) 370-8660, or at his email Luke@realtor.com. All Towne Realty is located at 30 Brant Avenue in Clark, NJ.
We are delighted to highlight another brother knight in Brothers in Business in this edition of the Digest. Our brother knight featured this month is Mike Ibbotson, the Owner and President of Drain Away Sewer Plumbing Company. Mike is fourth degree Knight who joined the order nine years ago. He once served as the Hall Manager.
Mike says that no plumbing job is too small so if you are ever in need of a plumber, give him a call. Mike previously worked for Anthony Rizzo and Sons but eventually branched out to have his own business. Mike is offering $50.00 off any job if you are a brother knight and you have him do a job at your home. He will also pay $50.00 to any brother who recommends him to a client who does business with him.
We all wish Mike all the best with his company and pray that the business grows throughout the years. Mike is married and is the father of two children. He is also a proud-grandpa.
